Scottish Cup Finals: Kirkcaldy targeting U12 double against North Ayrshire

Kirkcaldy Redskins face North Ayrshire Penguins in the U12 Scottish Cup Final on Saturday hoping to crown a superb season by completing the double.

The Redskins already have the league title in the bag after going through the campaign without losing a game.

Victories over Belfast and Solway took Kirkcadly into the final and head coach Sean Annan has urged his team to finish the season with a flourish.

“The Redskins have had a successful season so far with some outstanding team efforts to remain unbeaten in the League,” he said

“Every single player in the team has shown real development both individually and in terms of playing as a unit.

“The Scottish Cup final will be a difficult game, but it will give us a chance to cap off the season in style.”

North Ayrshire were impressive during the league campaign, losing just twice to finish as runners-up behind Kirkcaldy.

They defeated Lanarkshire and Kilmarnock on their way to the final and head coach Gary MacColl says he is delighted with progress the team has made this term.

“I’m proud of the team’s performance throughout the whole season,” he said.

“Their commitment and determination has earned them a well deserved place in the Scottish Cup Final.

“We have a challenging game ahead against the league winners, but it’s a challenge the team and I are ready for.”

The Scottish Cup Finals event begins at Dundee Ice Arena at 10.00am with the U12 final.

The U14, U16 and U20 finals are scheduled to follow during the afternoon, with the SNL final rounding off proceedings at 6.30pm.
